The campuses targeted in the latest wave are those considered prestigious or that have large Jewish populations, and that have requested a Chabad house, according to Rabbi Menachem Schmidt, a member of Chabad's executive committee and the Chabad representative at the University of Pennsylvania.

...
But proselytizing on campus is very unusual, Schmidt said.
"No one initiative can satisfy the needs and sensitivities of each individual student," he said.

Rabbi Menachem Schmidt, president of the Chabad on Campus International Foundation, which coordinates these activities, declined to estimate the amount of money that Rohr had donated.

...
Schmidt, who serves as a shaliach at the University of Pennsylvania in addition to his role at the helm of the foundation, said that the organization is planning to build more like it on other small liberal arts campuses.
...
For Schmidt, this dynamic is essential to the Chabad model. A Chabad House is like a home, Schmidt said: "You don't ask somebody when they come in to sweep the floor. If you're a polite guest, you'll say, 'How can I help?'" Schmidt emphasized that levels of participation by students differ from school to school.
...
Chabad's campus operation is planned through Schmidt's small office of about 10 employees and his executive committee made up of Chabad rabbis. The organization, which is a subsidiary of the official educational arm of the Lubavitch movement, selects campus shluchim and provides them with Rohr-sponsored startup grants, along with some training and strategic planning support. But after three years, shluchim are expected to be financially self-sufficient.
"The rebbe's organizational philosophy is very strongly that… as an organization, Chabad needs to take support from wherever it is," Schmidt said. The "rebbe" refers to Schneerson, who presided over the Lubavitch movement from his headquarters in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, from 1950, shortly after the movement's arrival in the United States, until his death in 1994. Schmidt explained: "People think there's this big funnel of money coming from Crown Heights into Texas A&M…. That's not the case."
...
Schmidt says that the rationale for this approach resides in the realm of Hasidic philosophy. "Every mitzvah that a person does makes a tremendous spiritual revolution in the world," he said. "It's not about becoming observant."
...
"Ten years in the American Jewish community is not a long time," Schmidt said. "We're not in a hurry.
